Second path to the heights!

Ok... I will be running another parallel series of captures of my recent expedition to Spiti Valley (Zanskar Ranges - Himalayas -Tibetian border). Route: Manali - Rohtang Pass - Gramphu - Chatru - Batal - Kunzum la - Losar - Kaza - Tabo! Quite a life changing experience it was! This was shot from on the second path... on the way to Kunzum la pass which is 4500m above sea level! It was almost -20 Degrees.... Quite cold I should say! I got down to shoot a couple of shots and within some 10 seconds I couldn't really breathe.... and something was happening to my head... realized this on time and rushed back into my car before I was back to normalcy. Was a beautiful sight! Skies were damn blue.... As you can see the first path (the zig zag one) was closed due to too much of ice! Will share more experiences in the coming days! Until then enjoy this one...
